USAdvisors.org is a Registered Investment Advisory firm (CRD #157403) and the source for news, projects and information about EB-5 Regional Centers and their investment projects. We are financial analysts, economists, accountants, statisticians and mathematicians that produce EB-5 Regional Center project comparative analysis reports for foreign national investors based on topics covering job creation methodology, the strategic plan, management, risk factors, risk mitigation, safety, return, exit strategy, escrow and industry overview among many others.  They have developed an approach to quantitatively assess the risks involved with the two key questions of the EB-5 project investment decision:

1. What is the probability that the jobs will be created within the time allotted and that those jobs will be acceptable to USCIS / CSC?
2. What is the probability that principal will be returned at term?  Is the exit strategy clearly defined and achievable?

This empirical analysis provides the foreign national investor with the information they need from an independent, professional resource that will help guide them to making the best possible investment decision for them and their family.

BIO

Michael Gibson is Managing Director of USAdvisors an independent Registered Investment Advisory Firm (FINRA CRD #157403) specializing in analyzing project risk and performing due diligence on EB-5 visa investments for investors their attorneys and advisors and providing information on the EB-5 program through the web portals EB5Projects.com, EB5Info.comEB5News.com and EB5.TV.   His previous work experience was with Citicorp Capital Markets Investment Bank structuring financial instruments, transactions and hedging bank investments and client risk in emerging markets.  In 2007 he established USAdvisors.org as an organization to assist foreign nationals with their EB-5 visa investment decisions.

Michael’s firm specializes in researching and analysis of both Regional Center and Direct investments through the EB-5 visa immigrant investor green card program into the United States. The firm's emphasis is to guide the accredited high net worth investor though the complex issues related to obtaining an EB-5 visa green card allowing foreign nationals and their families to live, study, work or retire in the United States while complying with all U.S. immigration guidance. The firm's principal duties involve visiting and analyzing EB-5 visa projects which are available for investment to foreign nationals.  

In 2007 he visited all designated Regional Centers and produced a DVD “EB5 Visa: The Regional Center Story” which documents the diverse nature of the EB-5 visa program and has continued to study, analyze and write about the investments and issues related to project failure and success through news articles, reports and investment analysis. 

USAdvisors maintains the largest EB-5 visa database of projects available for investment, EB5Projects.com, and uses the best analysts in the industry to determine the viability of these commercial projects to create jobs in accordance with USCIS EB-5 visa guidelines and the investment risks to the investor using cutting edge proprietary financial modeling such as RAROC. In 2009 - 2011 he served on the Board of Directors of IIUSA and was the former Chair of the Best Practices Committee.
